Are you one of those people who doesn't like the huge reticles of the Halo guns? Do you think you'd be more accurate with a smaller crosshair, like most games give you? If so, this is a skin for you. Basically, it changes all the reticles of every weapon except the sniper rifle and Warthog driver's seat to a small, accurate crosshair. Remember at the beginning of Pillar of Autumn, that little crosshair you had when you had no gun? This one is just a tiny bit bigger, and I designed it myself with DTXBitmap.
To install this skin:
- Open any map in HMT 3.5 - Go to the bitmaps section, then ui bitmaps combined hud_reticles - There should be 14 textures within this tag. One should be 128x128, and the others should all be 64x64 - Click the one that says 128x128, and Inject Texture. Select the crosshair_128.dds.1.dds - It should say something about resizing. Click okay, and then save. - For all of the 64x64 textures, use the crosshair_64.dds.2.dds - Inject texture, select the 64 one, and save. - Keep doing this until all 14 textures have been replaced.
- One of the 64x64 textures won't save, and it will crash HMT when you try to save the new texture. THIS IS NORMAL. That's the sniper rifle reticle, it shouldn't be changed. - When you save after injecting the textures, HMT will say you have an unhandled exception. Just click continue, it's not a problem. - In the game, some of the crosshairs are a couple of pixels off. The assault rifle and pistol use the 128x128 texture, and all the other guns use the 64x64 one. The AR and pistol's crosshairs are perfectly aligned, but there is a slight difference between those and the other guns. It's only a couple of pixels, and it won't throw off your aim.
Remember to save all your original reticles in case you want to put them back in if you don't like my reticles!
Hope you enjoy my crosshairs, Zamamee
